This model of vase, introduced at the Sèvres factory in 1766, represents one of the earliest neoclassical forms produced there. In contrast to the relative severity of the vase's form, the military scenes of the oval reserves do not reflect the prevailing neoclassical taste of the 1760s and 1770s. This lack of correspondence between the painted decoration and the neoclassical form was typical of the factory's production during this period.
